I posted what I thought was a humorous article on Richard Nixon with no commentary at all,and was surprised to find that people willing to defend him and personally address me as if I had made some comment.I then made my feelings clear on the subject.Why am I an asshole for doing what all the other people in the thread did ? When I originally posted I thought it would go unanswered,maybe someone would goof on it,I did not expect such staunch Nixon support on the GD forum.

My favorite editorial about Nixon, Dr. Hunter S. Thompson's 1994 "eulogy":

Well done SkyDawg. He even stole from himself. What an ugly legacy left by President Nixon. But what a funny scene, The Doomed.

Freaking funny! Dr. Thompson and Dick Nixon met and bonded over football! I forgot all about that Bill Murray scene!

Methinks thou dost protest too much.

My reply to your original post was in no way a personal attack on you, nor was it supportive of Richard Nixon. I quoted him for the irony that even after he has been dead for 17 years, people are still kicking him around. And even after I was attacked, I have attempted to, as they say, "take the high road".

Though I am sorry you find me to be a "whiny contemptible person", I can assure you I will lose no sleep over the situation. And to quote a member of the GD forum "family", "In any case these will be my last words directed to you."
